UPDATE FOR HOMECARE AND MYVISIT™ HOME SERVICES

November 16 2023
As of January 1, 2024, the price of Home Care services for homebound patients will increase by $10 to $55, and the price of MyVisit™, a convenience-based service, will increase to $85.

Dear health care providers,

LifeLabs is proud to offer at-home blood collection, ECGs, and specimen pick-up:

  • MyVisit™ for patients who prefer the convenience of elective at-home services
  • Home Care at a discounted rate for homebound patients when requested by their physicians

Due to rising costs, we have made the difficult decision to increase our prices to ensure we can continue to provide the quality services you and your patients expect and deserve, and to help serve those in need in more regions across Ontario. 

Please note: As of January 1, 2024, the price of Home Care services for homebound patients will increase by $10 to $55, and the price of MyVisit™, a convenience-based service, will increase to $85. All appointments booked in 2023 for dates in 2024 will be honoured with the current price, so we highly encourage your patients to book their appointment soon to take advantage of this if they are able to.  

To help serve your patients better, we have introduced numerous improvements to our mobile services this past year. We’ve centralized our appointment booking for homecare and long-term care, expanded our MyVisit operations across numerous regions in Ontario, and have continued to invest in our mobile service technologies to offer a better online experience for scheduling appointments.

If you have any further questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact us at myvisit@lifelabs.com or is 1-833-59-VISIT.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
